When can communication heal political division and help us hear more diverse voices? In what ways are communication practices—speaking, writing, listening, sharing—vital to student success and empowerment? What forums are necessary to rise to the challenge of important yet controversial social issues?
Faculty from BoulderTalks, a center of the Department of Communication, address society’s cultural crises, conflicts and challenges through research methods and democratic practices such as debate, dialogue and deliberation. Through dialogues at the Diversity and Inclusion Summit, storytelling with StoryTalk, and deliberation at the city of Boulder’s Neighborhood Summit, BoulderTalks furthers communication and understanding of complex issues among people of all backgrounds.
BoulderTalks is offering four dialogue sessions for this year.
Diversity Summit Dialogues: Can Recognizing Human Dignity Pave our Path Forward?
Join a facilitated dialogue exploring the diverse range of perspectives, hopes and fears held by members of the CU community. Dialogue participants will be invited to share their experiences about being seen and heard on campus and how these experiences can help us to collectively find our way forward.
